SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Students in South Orange County have helped put together a medical clinic on Saturday, Aug. 7, at Dana Hills High School from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., intended to help members of the disadvantaged community. Doctors and health care workers will be on-site.
The teens behind the project are Dana Hills High junior Edgar Omar Arteaga and St. Margaret’s Episcopal School freshman Dania Alexa Arteaga. Project partners include Mission Heritage Medical Group, City of Dana Point, Dr. Karen Fu, Dr. Pejman Fani, Dr. Alexa Gozali and Latino Health Access. The event is being facilitated through the Dragon Kim Foundation.
“In his free time, Edgar loves jamming with piano, guitar, and the violin. Edgar hopes to become a cardiologist stationed in low-income communities, inspiring youth in similar circumstances to work and play hard,” a news release said. “Outside of school, Dania is a Mexican folklorico dancer, a singer, and a writer. Dania is very passionate about social justice issues, striving to create a safe, positive community.”
Carl Cosue of Premier Ambulance and Kervin Wang, a systems engineer with the Department of Defense, are serving as project mentors.
